A -12 or a +1 would be pretty close to that and it's looking like more wheel so probably a 20".

I know this one has a leveling kit, and I know the 4X4 is taller than a 4X2. My question is... What wheel specs should I go with to get close to achieve this look? I'm going to with a 33/12.5 for sure, but wanted a few suggestions here. Most likely will be a BFG AT or MT if I can get a good deal. Currently it's stock, with rancho quicklifts on order.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
Definitely- 12. U wont be dissapointed. Thats the setup i have with 33/12.5 tires and i love the look

Default anyone with experience with these tires?

I did a search for these brands and sizes of tires an came up with a couple answers but didn't get much of what I am looking into, sorry if this has been answered already. I have a 2004 F150 4WD currently with General Grabber HTS 275/55/R20 on them. They are getting pretty worn (evenly) and am looking into a couple cheaper sets as I just put about a thousand into the engine to get it running and sounding right. The two brands that I am looking at are: Dextero DHT2 and General Grabber UHP, both at the same size as currently on the truck. I want to keep the same stance, both have about a 31.9inch height and my current tires stand at that height, but when looking at the pics of the Grabber UHP, it looks like they are low profile even though the specs are still about 31.9inch height. I am not looking at getting the low profiles if that is the case, may just be a standard pic that I am looking at. These are at Walmart and range from about $120 to about 130 apiece. Does anyone have experience with either type and any pics if possible? Thank you for any input. By the way, as far as I know, my truck is not raised and there is no level kit on it. I am attaching a pic of my truck as it currently is.

Default Big tires

Hey everyone,

I'm real fresh to the forum and to modding my truck, to be honest.
I have a 05 F150 with a 2.5" leveling kit on the front and aftermarket 18" rims.
As naive as it sounds, I want to put the biggest tires on it as I can.
Without having to do a crazy amount of trimming.
I've always heard "put 35's on it." But I realized that I dont even know what that means. I used to think it was 35 inches tall, but after reading thru this thread I know I'm wrong.
Also, I'm worried with the bigger tires it will put a lot of stress on the steering members, breaks, etc.
Is this true, or do I have to go insanely big to effect all that?

I'm not sure how wide my rims are. I got them at DiscountTire. so, I'll have to ask them the width and spacing.

I'm sure this has already been asked, but thank you for any help.

Beast, I have a 2.5" level on my 07 and I'm running 305 65 r17's. That roughly translates to a tire that is 32.8" in overall diameter, 12.2" in width and mounted on a rim that is 17" in diameter (those numbers may be a few decimals off). I have no rubbing at all with this set up. Some people on here said I could have run 35's (typically 35" diameter by 12.5" width) but it was too uncertain for me. I would definitely recommend checking with that tire shop on the rim size and offset. Then take that info and research some of the threads here relating to tire size and wheel offsets. There's a ton of useful and accurate info in the stickies section. On the other hand, if you just want the simple and safe solution, go grab some BFG all terrains in 305 65 17 because like I said I can tell you with certainty that will work. Good luck!

After rereading your post I realized my tires will definitely not fit your truck simply because you have 18" rims but look for a comparison to that rim size and that will work for you.
